SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Translation by U.Ve. Dr. V.N. Vedanta Desikan Swamin:

385. avarODhagathasya rangaBharthurgathiShu vyanjithagarBharathnanAdhA
     prathisamllapasIva pAdhukE!thvam kamalAnUpuramanjushinjithAnAm

Oh Paaduka! As the Lord walks into the harem, the gemstones produce a 
musical sound that appear to be engaged in a dialogue with the 
jingling sound from the anklets of Mahalakshmi.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan

Special Notes by V. Satakopan (V.S.)

(1) Sri UtthamUr Swamy's anubhavam: Oh MaNi PaadhukE! When 
RanganAthan travels on You to the inner chambers of RanganAyaki , the 
melodious sounds raised by coming together of gems adorning You 
appear to be conversing with the sweet Naadham  generated  by the 
ankle ornaments of  Sri RanganAyaki moving towards
Her Lord to welcome Him. The mingling of these two Naadhams resemble 
the ongoing conversation  between Them( dhivya Dampathis) .

(2) Swamy Desikan refers here to the PaadhukA Garbha rathna Naadham  
responding to MahA Lakshmi's Noopura Mani Naadham ( sounds of ankle 
bells ) as She moves towards Her Lord to welcome Him to her chambers. 
Swamy Desikan visualizes the PaadhukA MaNi naadham as SallAbham 
(conversations) and the naadham raised by MahA lakshmi's silampu as 
Prathi-sallAbham( Tava garbha-rahtna naadha: KamalA Noopura 
SinjithAnAm Prathi-sallAbhimiva) ..V.S
